The heroes attend the reading of Professor Lorrimor’s will, where they discover that he has a complex task for them to perform involving returning several books of occult significance. They also discover Professor Lorrimor’s diary, and learn about his connection to a secretive organization called Whispering Way. Ultimately they agree to spend a month in Ravengro helping his daughter take care of his final affairs.
The next day they learn that, during the night, someone has defaced the monument to those who died in the Harrowstone fire with blood spelling out the letter “V”. They later scout the town and do some research about its history. Then they scout out the local cemetery in anticipation of raiding a cache of ghost hunting gear.
